Potential Root Causes of Your Hormone Imbalance
You Might Not Have Considered
Heavy Metal Toxicity
Unhealthy Cortisol Production
Poor Estrogen Detox
Unhealthy Androgen Metabolism
Poor Food Choices
Survey Says …..
It is estimated that a staggering 85% of menstruating women experience PMS symptoms with up to 5% of these women disabled by the severity of their symptoms. This should not be the norm. Yet conditions like estrogen dominance are on the rise, with an estimated 1 in 8 women at risk for breast cancer. Copper toxicity also complicates the hormone picture, with 70-80% of hair & mineral analysis results demonstrating coper toxic patterns – a common occurrence with estrogen dominance.
Our Secret Sauce
#1: Understand Your Full Hormone Snapshot
Imbalances in hormone levels can lead to estrogen dominance or androgen dominance which can create many hormone-based symptoms. Unhealthy breakdown of hormones can also cause symptoms like acne & PMS. Using herbal protocols can help rebalance these pathways
#2: Uncover & Treat Gut Issues
Gut issues are often at the core of imbalanced hormone production. These stealth infections cause hidden stress such as leaky gut which impairs cortisol patterns and sex hormone production.
Mineral imbalances often allow a state of disease to persist. For example, copper toxicity and estrogen dominance are inextricably linked. Addressed these imbalances gives your body the energy it needs to move into a healing state.

Comprehensive Intake & Testing
As part of our programs, we provide a
comprehensive intake that carefully screens for
lifestyle factors and potential hidden stressors
that could be impacting your health
Diet & Lifestyle Coaching
You will be provided with 2 months of healthy,
anti-inflammatory meal plans (which includes
recipes, nutritional information and shopping
lists). Lifestyle coaching will support the

Our Signature Lab Tests
The DUTCH test (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) determines your free and total cortisol levels, which is an indication of how much of this hormone is actually available for use. You need to know your free cortisol levels in order to understand how much of your cortisol is actually available to your cells. Knowing your total cortisol level means nothing if 99% is not available for use by your cells. The DUTCH test also provides information about how the body is breaking down hormones (hormone metabolite level)including three different estrogen metabolites. This is important because it lets you know whether estrogen is being detoxed down cancer-causing pathways. The DUTCH test also gives us a window into your methylation status, letting us know whether your body can actually get rid of the estrogen it produces.
Conventional blood testing for hormones provides you with the basic levels for the sex hormones of estradiol (E2; a type of estrogen), progesterone and testosterone. However, blood testing is unable to provide information about your cortisol rhythm, the levels all types of estrogens or how your hormones are being broken down.
This test provides key information about hormone levels and possible causes of hormone imbalance, including:
- Sex hormone levels: estrogen, testosterone and progesterone
- Estrogen & testosterone detoxification pathways
- Whether estrogen is being detoxified down cancer-causing pathways
- Whether estrogen dominance is an issue
- Degree of oxidative stress
- Glutathione levels, which is the body’s master antioxidant
- Your cortisol pattern, which will indicate whether your cortisol is higher than normal on a regular basis and impacting your hormone production
- Whether your body is in an anabolic (building up) or catabolic state (breaking down). This will impact your body’s ability to lose weight and build muscle mass.
Hair & Minerals Analysis
Hair, Tissue and Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is an essential component of understanding your health picture. This test provides valuable information about patterns of mineral imbalances that can provide guidance on how to re-energize your body. HTMAs reveal whether you have copper toxicity, mercury exposure, dehydration at a cellular level, or a calcium shell that leads to emotional numbness. Knowing levels of copper toxicity is important because high levels of copper can increase estrogen levels. This test will also provide key indicators about adrenal health, thyroid health, infections, blood sugar imbalances and metabolic health.
Instead of viewing each mineral in isolation, the interpretation of your hair and mineral results relies on the understanding that minerals are a complex, interrelated system. The healing protocols require a unique understanding of mineral patterns. Once your body’s minerals begin to rebalance, you enter into a state of optimal healing and often naturally let go of unwanted heavy metals and toxins.
The GI Map
The GI Map uses DNA- based technology called PCR technology that is thousands of times more sensitive than conventional because it can identify the entire microbiota. It can also determine the severity of your infections. Using this test, practitioners are now able to find infections that they have been missing out on for decades and could be impacting your hormone production.
In conventional medicine, stool culturing remains the main technology despite the slow shift being made towards PCR technology. Stool culturing involves taking a swab of the stool and putting it in a petri dish and seeing what grows, and looking at the sample under a microscope to see if ova (eggs) and parasites can be seen.
This means A LOT of false negatives because…
– a lot of things cannot grow in a petri dish
– the pathogens need to be alive in your stool
The infectious portion of this test looks for:
- Bacterial infections – such as c. difficile & e. coli
- Parasitic & protozoan infections – like giardiasis
- Viral infections – like norovirus and Epstein Barr
- H Pylori (this test also determines virulence factors/pathogenicity)
- Fungi & yeast Infections
(total of 44 different markers)
The functional portion of the lab test examines:
- Levels of healthy and opportunistic bacteria
- GI immune system health
- Gluten sensitivity
- Enzyme levels
(total of 35 different markers)
